Very interesting - have you seen this new feature that shows more Live videos after a broadcast has finished? In this example, I was doing a test Facebook Live on my personal profile this morning, set to Only Me. When I checked my wall, on desktop this was the first time I've seen "Explore more live videos." A la YouTube. Hmm.

Well, friends, just like mid-roll ads, as the broadcaster, you...

Newsflash: SAVES on Facebook posts is now a public facing stat on other pages, not just for admins of your page. Hm!! Can you see it on your page and other pages?
